The determination of the isotopic composition of Cu and Zn in seawater
J. Bermin (1), D. Vance (2), C. Archer (2), P.J. Statham (3)
The stable isotope compositions of Zn and Cu in natural materials are newly available for measurement with the advent of multiple-collector inductively coupled mass spectrometry (MC–ICPMS). Although the oceans are prime scientific targets, no progress has been made as yet because of considerable analytical challenges involving the low concentrations of these elements in seawater. We present a procedure which allows isotopic analysis of Zn and Cu isotope compositions of seawater samples at least 1 L in size by MC ICPMS.
